Robotic Hypocrisy


So Foxconn wants to build 1 million robots? The implications are obvious and profound.

How would it feel to build the robot you know is going to replace you? One might ask, why would anyone take such a job?

 Of course, it is easy to see the plight of those Chinese workers in black and white.  But here in the US, we are faced with the same sort of predicament. Most of us just cannot see it as plainly, or even at all. We may not work to build machines that we know will replace us, but we do things that are every bit as destructive. Take television consumption for example. We watch television programming and advertising created by a corporate media conglomerate designed to shape our culture in ways that serve the owners of the media, the top 0.1%. People like Rupert Murdoch have spent billions finding ways to subtly engineer tv Programming "content", and ads, to implant messages to drive our culture right into their hands. The irony is that these people are building robots just like Foxconn is, the only difference is their robots are human.

That's a big reason why the rich get richer and richer... They implant the basis behind our so-called choices. In doing so, they literally pull the lever for us when we do things like go vote. Their level of control is strengthening each year as the people fail to respond to this mortal threat. At least the Chinese can see their enemy being created right before their eyes. Most Americans are programmed to be willfully blind to it. But when you do see it, you know that consuming corporate media really is no different than working on an assembly line to build the robot that replaces you.

It's genuinely very difficult in this active life to listen news on TV, therefore I just use world wide web for that purpose, and take the most up-to-date information.

I drop a comment each time I like a post on a website or if I have something to add to the discussion.
Usually it's caused by the passion displayed in the article I read. And on this post "Robotic Hypocrisy". I was actually moved enough to drop a commenta response :-) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay.

Is it just me or do some of the comments come across like they are written by brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to
post. Could you make a list the complete urls
of your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Another available treatment option that can
be done at home without a prescription is a topical
ointment. If you carefully read all of the directions on the package, you can freeze off your skin tags without feeling any pain and they'll be quickly eliminated. The brown-slatted background in the image above really isn't part of the technique I
was trying to demonstrate here.
